In Photoshop CS6 Essential Training, Julieanne Kost demonstrates how to produce high-quality images in a short amount of time, using a combination of Adobe Photoshop CS6, Bridge, and Camera Raw.
The course details the Photoshop features and creative options, and shows efficient ways to perform common editing tasks, including noise reduction, shadow and highlight detail recovery, retouching, and combining multiple images. Along the way, the course explores techniques for nondestructive editing and compositing using layers, blending modes, layer masks, and much more.
Once you understand the power of Camera Raw, then you're going to want to speed up your workflow by learning how to process multiple files at one time. Probably the simplest way to do this would be to select your image and open it in Camera Raw. Then you want to apply any adjustments. We'll add a quick effect in the Post Crop Vignetting. I'll go ahead and make a white border, we'll change the roundness so that it's along the edge, it's more of a rectangle, and I'll decrease the Feather, and then we'll bring in that Midpoint.
So I've just made a very basic change to my image. Now I'll go ahead and click Done and that will return me back to Bridge, and we can see that vignette has been added. Well, if I want to apply that same vignette to another image, I don't actually have to go into Camera Raw; all I need to do is select Edit > Develop Settings and then copy my Camera Raw settings, or use the keyboard shortcut Command+Option+C or Ctrl+Alt+C on Windows.
That copies the settings. Now I simply move to the next image and return to Edit > Develop Settings and now I can paste the Camera Raw settings. Of course, I may or may not want to paste all of the settings, so I will get presented with a dialog box where I can pick all of the different settings in Camera Raw. Now I don't want to go and check on and off each one of these individually, so if you choose the subset menu, we can quickly move to just the Post Crop Vignetting.
When I click OK, Bridge will paste those Camera Raw settings from the first image to that second image. Before we wrap up, I should just mention that you can also remove settings from that menu; just select Edit > Develop Settings > and then Clear Settings. You will notice that the vignette disappears, as did the icon which would've suggested that settings had been applied.
